Can speaking truth to power unravel the age of disillusion we find ourselves in? The Creative Time SPEAKING TRUTH | SUMMIT X addresses radical truth telling, its implications, manifestations, and potentialities this November 15 – 16 in the Great Hall.
Since its inception in 2009, the Creative Time Summit has functioned as a flexible, roving platform bringing together artists, activists, and other thought leaders engaging with today’s most pressing issues. As fierce debates about the nature of truth rage on globally, this year's Summit will explore radical truth-telling - its implications, manifestations, potentialities, and challenges across disparate yet interconnected fields.
This year’s multi-day program features presentations from Lara Baladi, Josh Begley, Aruna D’Souza, Stephanie Dinkins, Yousra Elbagir, Abigail Echo-hawk, Léuli Eshraghi, Jeremy O. Harris, Marisa Morán Jahn, Chris Kraus, Kia Labeija, Victoria Lomasko, Larissa Sansour, and Lauren Woods. As well as intimate moments for learning and exchange including a dinner program, and over 30 sessions led by artists, organizations, collectives, and grass-roots movements — such as Carlos Motta, Molly Crabapple, Taeyoon Choi, Viva Ruiz from Thank God for Abortion, Maria Hupfield, and 8-Ball Community Inc.
The complete schedule for this School of Art co-sponsored program can be found at www.creativetime.org.
Located in The Great Hall, in the Foundation Building, 7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues
